Supplier needed of etching fluid solution for stainless steel/electro-static
January 12, 2012
We are a company here in the U.S. who designs and distributes deep deep drawn tableware for the beverage industry.
We purchase etching fluid used with stencils to apply logos to our products using electrostatic etching method.
The current U.S. supplier no longer carries the specific solution we need in order to obtain the desired color of the logo. The etching is produced overseas and our finisher cannot obtain a fluid that produces desirable results.
Can someone provide me with a distributor or manufacturer who can provide any type of etching fluid used for stainless steel? I would like to buy small amount and have test made to view results before purchasing large quantity.
